I have to admit, I can’t stand those fake pinhole/lomo iPhone apps that everyone seems to use as their default camera on Facebook. Wow, look at how ‘retro’ your smart-phone-filled gathering looks now!

Anyway – venom aside – I do respect actual lomography. You know, where you make beautiful photographs, using that camera thing. I have even more respect for Kelly Angood, who has taken it a step further, and created a Hasselblad pinhole camera, that you can print out and create yourself!:

This carefully produced downloadable and printable net file represents an iconic Hassleblad camera as a low impact and functional product that is available to all as an A4 sized, 8 page PDF. The camera takes 35mm film and takes 12-14 images per roll.


Images created by the community of users will be viewable atwww.pinholehassleblad.tumblr.com. Please send any images of your camera or produced by your camera topinhole@kellyangood.co.ukto be uploaded to the blog!


Pretty amazing stuff, (I had to withhold saying ‘oh snap!’ there). If you’re interested in making your own Pinhole Hassleblad, download it here, and prepare to get busy with the craft knife.
